A key focus at Mitie is employee engagement, ensuring the correct behaviours and attitudes toward sustainability have been adopted across the Group. People are the core of our business, and so ensuring they really understand the importance of sustainability is integral to the future success of Mitie. Through a series of regular online communications, events, posters and newsletters on sustainability, we strive to change employee behaviour when it comes to Mitie’s impact on the environment.
This year we went one step further and provided an accredited online training program – Resource Aware – for 3,000 Mitie people, developed in association with the Energy Institute, Future Water Association, and Chartered Institute of Waste Management. These institutes accredited three modules: Waste Aware, Energy Aware and Water Aware.
Each module concludes with a quiz, testing the understanding of the user. Once a Mitie person completes the training with a score of at least 70 points out of an available 100, they receive three certificates accredited by the institutes.
Currently, around 1,000 Mitie people have completed the training, and this number is growing each month.
